Online Insurance CE & How to Avoid Accidents
Karen was running late on her California Insurance Renewal like many insurance agents. Her license was expiring in a few days. She was pressed to finish her continuing education requirements. She needed to pay her California license renewal fees. Flash forward a day, and three continuing ed courses were completed and fees paid to the DOI. Done? She thought so. Karen called our office to make sure her credits were posted.
A quick online insurance CE lookup showed they were. But our customer service rep spotted a problem. She was missing 3 hours of Ethics CE. In fact, she didn’t know they were required, so we explained California’s CE Rules in less than a minute. The good news? She had time to finish her ethics course. There was no charge because she qualified for our “all you can eat” program.
We can help you like we helped Karen. Visit our California Insurance CE page or call us for assistance at (800) 498-5100.
The bottom line: NO DOI late fees ($180); NO interruption in her ability to serve clients. We’re not sure how other companies roll. Helping agents avoid CE accidents like this is standard procedure here. We’re serious about our customer service.
How else do we help? A quick call or email to us BEFORE you complete your CE can help with last-minute running around, as Karen did. We will look up your insurance license requirements. We will ask a question or two about the products you sell. We will make specific course recommendations to avoid CE accidents. Finally, we will make the most out of your continuing education experience.
Our online Insurance CE is fast, easy, and affordable.
That last point is essential. If you’re going to spend the time, you should at least be getting something out of your CE. Reading generic courses that do not further your career is another CE accident. How about reading about something you can actually use? For example, few schools feature agent liability issues. Translation: We talk about agent lawsuits and things that bump in the night. You need to know what can go wrong as an insurance agent. We have a whole slew of these courses. We must meet the California insurance ethics requirement too! The reason we offer them? Selling insurance comes with financial exposure to error. The more you know about other agents’ mistakes, the less likely you will repeat them.
